    I want to update my R4i RTS 3DS to the latest firmware (V1.82B). So I downloaded the file and insert it into my Micro SD card, but on my 3DS all the pops up is a black screen. My 3DS is Ver. 9.4.0-21U. Am I supposed to update my 3ds in order for the new firmware to work?

    The reason why I want to update is because I'm trying to play a game called Tokimeki Memorial Girl's Side 3 (the english patch came out a few weeks ago). I've downloaded the clean rom and I've patched it correctly. I even tried it on Desmume to see if it works correctly and it does. But when I installed in on my R4 (using old wood firmware) all that popped was the loading screen. Please help!!

    Hello, Roxis Lariun here

    First, You need to open the update on the R4 Menu
    Second, you need to restart the R4
    and Finally, you can use R4 with update
    But some games don't work :c

    It's All
    Bye​

    Yeah, I downloaded the latest firmware in English. So, I deleted all the files on my MicroSD and just insert the files in the rar and some games. But when I try to play the flashcart on my 3DS a black screen appears. :( Do you know what files I need to make it work?

    These are all the things on my SD card: sd card.JPG
    These are the files from the latest firmware (I downloaded from www.r4ids.cn): firmware.JPG
    I put the firmware files into my SD card and I turn on my 3DS: home menu.JPG
    This is what my flashcart menu looks like: start.JPG game select.JPG
    But when I choose the game I want to play (Tokimeki Memorial Girl's Side 3), the loading screen appears for a long period of time: loading.JPG

    When I try to play the patched version of the game, it wouldn't work. So, I tried to play the clean, unpatched version of the game and it still wouldn't work. Is something wrong with the game or my flashcart? I think it's weird because the two previous games in the series were able to play just fine on my flashcart and this is the only game I'm having problems with. Please help!

    Can you try http://filetrip.net/dl?FhXOBrY7vI as a kernel, not the multimedia one? (the multimedia kernel is highly outdated).

    The card has like 99% compatibility. Almost every game should work.

    I downloaded the new kernel: updated sd.JPG new homescreen.jpg
    But I still get that red loading screen when I try to play Tokimeki Girl's Side 3 (patched & unpatched version). I also tried to play the first game in the series (which is similar) and that doesn't work either when it used to before (I get this white screen): white screen.JPG
    To make sure nothing was wrong with the flashcart, I tested it on Mario Kart and that game worked perfectly fine.

    I think it's very weird that a game that worked on the old kernel doesn't work on the new one. :( Please help.

    There are some settings when pressing X/Y (not sure which button it was). Maybe you can fix them by disabling some real time features or some other settings. You might want to set the size of the savegame manually.

    I tried all the different savegame sizes (4k - 64m) and I still get that red loading screen. :( How do I disable the real time features? And I apologize for the late reply.

    Press start -> Properties or options or something like that, go through the pages with L/R and stop when you see Real Time stuff (Softreset/Real Time Save/RTS).
